This book, a follow-up to Kitaj’s influential “First Diasporist Manifesto” (1989), is a personal reflection on the Jewish Question in contemporary art as it is lived and painted and imagined by one of today’s most innovative and controversial artists. In 615 distinct propositions that deliberately echo the Commandments of Jewish Law, Kitaj here channels his ideas for a new Diasporist art in a daring stream of consciousness. Including 41 images of the artist’s work chosen by him to accompany the text, this beautifully crafted volume is a unique and fascinating look into an artist’s unusual life and work.
